The following information was obtained at The Abbey of Fontenay is a former Cistercian abbey located near Montbard, in the département of Côte-d'Or, France. It was founded by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux in 1118, and built in the Romanesque style. It is one of the oldest and most complete Cistercian abbeys in Europe, and became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981. The Abbey of Fontenay is part of the link between Romanesque and Gothic architectures. Bernard of Clairvaux inherited the Byzantine ideas that light is God, and that the only way to experience God is through light. For a long time it was also believed that perfect proportions can be achieved through music. Thus, when designing the glass windows, numerical ratios corresponding to music were applied. For instance, seven windows in the west of the interior were distributed according to a musical ratio of 3/4.
